    Interview

    Extremely easy I set up a time and date to meet. The interview was very casual and did not have any questions that I did not practice for. The only thing that I didn't expect was a quiz but it was middle school math so no one should have trouble with it.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by one of the associates who works on the Chrysler account though I wasn't initially suppose to meet with him, but to meet with one of the VPs and senior managers. This guy was incredibly rude -- he seemed as though I was inconveniencing him, and after two minutes of speaking with him, he appeared uninterested in what I had to say and didn't even both to really listen. He practically rushed me out. And at the end of the interview, he coldly said "thank you" and didn't even both to walk me out of the office or say, "goodbye." There's nothing wrong with being a tough interviewer, but at least, demonstrate some professional courtesy. I hope he isn't a reflection of all of the employees who work there at UM!

    Interview

    I sent my resume through to the recruiter and was contacted within a week or so to schedule a basic phone interview. At the end of the phone call, I was informed that they wanted to meet in person. I then moved on to the next round of three interviews in the office. You have to complete a simple math exam before the interviews.

    Interview

    Called by a recruiter, set up interview pretty quickly. Questions were straight forward, however no follow up with HR if you do not receive the position. Math test, which isn't hard but I would suggest knowing percentages

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a casual conversation. They wanted to know who I was, my experience. Then we just had a conversation that was professional and casual. It was chill and easy. But I guess they needed someone since their department has such a high turnover rate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at UM (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The process was rather quick and easy. I first took a math test, a week later a phone screening, then two days later a round robin. I received my offer the next day. Everyone was super nice and the office is beautiful. I felt terrible turning this down as it was a great experience, but salary wise they are below market value and I had other offers.
